it does, at least with bios access ( for booting) or a linux kernel
  ( for the installed system later on ).

I have found that the only thing they balk on
are "flash disks" with IDE interface for (pc104) embedded systems.
Like:	http://www.dpie.com/storage/chipdisk.html
Aside from needing a male/male 44pin adapter
slave access on that bus returns absurd information.
something that probably could be worked around with
some determination applied.
( My idea at the time was loading up a flash disk with
a complete system on my workbox and then just move it over
to the embedded system. I dumped the flash disk and replaced
them with a run of the mill CF Card ( that can actually behave
like an ide drive too). works well and happens to be a lot
cheaper too ;-)
